On December 24, 2012, New York was torn apart by a strange organic structure that emerged from underground, which was later dubbed as "The Babel". Two years before, man-eating creatures called "The Twisted" had been sighted, but they mostly stayed underground and out-of-site until the Babel raised to the surface. After the Babel had raisen, masses of Twisted had started to attack and kill many people in the city.
What in the world is this!? this doesn't sound like a Parasite eve game!
The third birthday is a action tittle spinoff of the Parasite eve series of sorts for the PSP by Hexa Drive and SquareEnix. The game has had a mixed reception and a mixed set of reviews that came along with it's release, I suspect this is due to that people were not expecting it not to be a spinoff and combined with the things the director of the game has stated in interviews. Instead of getting a horror survival game with an RPG like system in we got a action based, third person shoot em up game with RPG elements in. As far as a spinoff tittle goes, I feel that it does well for itself as far as music and gameplay goes, the plot and characterization being utterly atrocious. The game only follows parasite eve 1-2 as little as possible, when it comes to how much they follow parasite eve 1-2 it will be in references, familiar faces and names.
